A micro air vehicle (MAV), or micro aerial vehicle, is a class of Miniature UAVs that has a size restriction and may be autonomous. Modern craft can be as small as 15 centimetres. Development is driven by commercial, research, government, and military purposes; with insect-sized aircraft reportedly expected in the future. The small craft allows remote observation of hazardous environments inaccessible to ground vehicles. MAVs have been built for hobby purposes, such as aerial robotics contests and aerial photography.
US Air Force Research Laboratory video animation of a flapping-wing micro air vehicle (MAV). AFRL's goal is to develop a bird-sized MAV by 2015 and an insect-sized MAV by 2030. The bird-sized MAV would be air-deployed from a larger UAV so search for weapons of mass destruction, operating semi-autonomously for up to a week.
This is video with assembly procedure of foldable Micro Air Vehicle. This was was designed and built by Bill Silin for 10th International MAV Competition. Lucky pilot was Bret Becker. MAV fits into 30 cm^3 box (12x50x50). MAV flew well before the competition - up to 5 minutes, but during the competition we got only 60-80 seconds flights due to gusty wind - only 3rd place.
Here is a very cool video on the technology and where it is headed with micro air vehicles. This video will have you watching over your shoudler!! ATTENTION!! We are moving!

http://www.undergroundworldnews.com This has been the promise that the Air Force made quite clear in their video early last year about nanodrone tech that you can see below. According to the USAF, Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs), combined with the ability to harvest energy, will enable insect-sized drone swarms to be dropped from military aircraft to stay aloft for a prolonged amount of time, offering a host of functions, including assassination. http://www.techswarm.com/2014/12/darpas-autonomous-microdrones-designed.html?m=1

In nature, several animals have evolved design solutions that enable them to successfully transition between water and air, and move in both media. Examples include flying fish, flying squid, diving birds and diving insects. We have reviewed the biological literature on these multimodal animals and abstracted their underlying design principles with the aim of building a robotic equivalent, the Aquatic Micro Air Vehicle (AquaMAV). Our exploration has identified key adaptations from nature and designs from robotics. Based on this evaluation we have proposed key design principles for the design of successful aerial-aquatic robots, i.e. using a plunge diving strategy for water entry, folding wings for diving efficiency, water jet propulsion for water takeoff and hydrophobic surfaces for water ...
The video shows autonomous stable flight a novel Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) aircraft -- the Cyclocopter, developed at the University of Maryland by Dr. Moble Benedict, Ms. Elena Shrestha, Dr. Vikram Hrishikeshavan and Prof. Inderjit Chopra. Cyclocopter utilizes cycloidal-rotors (cyclorotors), a revolutionary horizontal axis propulsion concept which has many advantages such as higher aerodynamic efficiency and maneuverability. One of the key advantages of the cyclorotor is its thrust vectoring capability, which is utilized in the present study for yaw control. The present vehicle has a twin-cyclorotor and a horizontal tail rotor configuration where each of the rotors is powered using independent motors. The cyclorotor design was optimized based on the detailed experimental...

Collecting water data with flying robots will allow rapid response to natural disasters, and lower the costs of water health monitoring. To enable this, we have developed an Aquatic Micro Air Vehicle(AquaMAV) a novel robot able to dive into water from flight. It is inspired by the plunge dive of Sulid birds and can dive into the water, record data and collect water samples, before retaking flight with a high-powered burst of thrust. This video presents an overview of the current vehicle. More details can be found at http://www.imperial.ac.uk/aerial-robotics
